Google your name

Recommended Posts

For me, it's a bit irritating. There is a guy who shares my name and has a like named domain. He is an artist, teaches his trade at a university and makes really interesting art. I don't want to be specific, because the art is a bit unusual and I don't want anybody knowing my real name. Anyway, when you google my name you are deluged with pages of stuff about this guy, where you can buy his stuff, his personal site, friends of his, etc, etc. It's almost impossible to find anything about me. Maybe that's good. How about you?

Edit to add - I don't have a very common name, so it makes it all the more irritating.

My linkedin shows up but not FB.

Probably don't have my preferences set correctly. That site can be quite annoying :angry:

I got a Wikipedia entry.

Cynthia is a personal name of Greek origin (Κυνθία, Kynthía) meaning "from Mount Cynthus" on Delos island. It can be abbreviated as Cindy.

Cynthia was originally an epithet of the Greek goddess of the moon, Artemis, who was sometimes called "Cynthia" because, according to legend, the goddess was born on Mount Cynthus.

Wow, I feel special. :D

1. My facebook profile shows up, along with a few others of people who are my facebook friends.

2. My myspace shows up.

3. A comment I made about a deceased (really great) professor showed up.

4. A comment/question I asked about my old digital camera

5. A comment/question about a lawn tool that I made on amazon.

There were a few that weren't me: people who spell their last name different from mine and occasionally, I get a porn star! :o

You just reminded me, I USED to get a French porn actor. Maybe I'll add "porn" to my search and see what comes up.

I use FB partly for work, so I am really careful

Good to be careful - a lot of employers or potential employers these days do google candidates' names :o

O'rly ?

I've done it. All I get are obituaries. :(

No one alive seems to have my name. I'm grateful I'm not dead and on one the tombstones though.

I'm so ALIVE !!!! and a Pearl Jam fan too.

Nice one! I'm really just a pussycat though, that owl looks kinda mean.

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsiepop ? That old owl never found out, did he?

I guess he wasn't as smart as he's trying to look. B)

A pantload of Italian sports injury reports because my last name means "knee" in Italian. LOL

Evidently there's a historic landmark hotel in Marshall, TX with my name on it.
